This article discusses the factors in patient selection, room setup, and other considerations. The options available for in-office treatment of nasal valve repair are discussed, including turbinoplasty, septoplasty, and nasal valve repair/functional rhinoplasty –type techniques described in the literature.

AbstractMicrosurgical free flaps are the accepted standard of care for head and neck reconstruction after tumor resection. In many cases, the pedicle of the free flap needs to be tunneled under bone and/or soft tissues to reach the recipient vessels in the site of anastomosis, most often located in the neck. Passing the pedicle through the dissected tunnel is always a blind procedure that increases the risk of shearing, turning, twisting, or kinking and in the worst case disconnection. We hereby demonstrate a novel and simple technique for a safe delivery of the pedicle to the anastomosis site in the neck using a nasophary...

ConclusionClassical aesthetic rhinoplasty appears to improve nasal obstruction symptoms, and this is stable through time. However, limitations apply.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

Facial plast Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1683858The dynamics of the doctor–patient relationship has been complicated as more patients seem to expect perfection in this age of selfies and Internet postings. The preoperative patient interview is critical to recognize both body language clues and subtle but apparent red flags to avoid rhinoplasty on potentially unhappy patients. This interview should include routine use of a body dysmorphic disorder screening questionnaire since legions of these patients are undiagnosed prior to surgery and few, if any, are ever satisfied with even an excellent surgical result. These patie...

AbstractIntroductionThe aim of this randomized controlled study was to analyze the long-term results of patients undergoing rhinoplasty because of severe septal deviation and to evaluate the stability of results.Materials and MethodsThe study was performed with a randomized design. Patients were randomly divided into four groups: group 1, spreader flaps were used in combination with spreader grafts; group 2, spreader flaps were used alone; group 3, spreader grafts were used alone; and group 4, neither spreader flaps nor grafts flaps were used. Patients answered the Italian version of the FACE-Q rhinoplasty module. Anthropo...

Conclusions Our multipurpose bilateral augmentation spreader graft positioned above the septal plane was effective in dorsal and tip augmentation without the need for alloplastic material. Conservative hump reduction combined with augmentation of the relatively deficient areas of the nose produces a balanced nasal profile.

Conclusion The results of the study reveal a new objective variable that can impact nasal tip dynamics and patient-related differences following rhinoplasty. This study not only brings forth a different perspective in the evaluation of nasal tip dynamics but can also provide data for determining ideal values for cartilage prefabrication.

Conclusions High-level evidence studies demonstrate promising results for the use of both NPs and MBPs in the care of plastic surgery patients. Further study in this field is warranted.
